Officer Dwight Boyd from the release The Gravel Pit Manifesto

Rated 5 out of 7 by Citizens of The Gravel Pit Universe | You have not rated this song

give that man a brown shirt and a microphone

some fans a badge a shotgun of his very own 

he's too dumb to star in a tv show 

but he's the new hero

on the trail of deadbeats and deviants 

on the road to total obedience 

every monday night all the idiots 

watch the new hero

officer dwight boyd
the crime fighting clown 

officer dwight boyd
the crime fighting clown

so don't pretend you're innocent 

officer boyd is diligent 

in half an hour he'll track you down 

with any luck he'll beat you down

officer dwight boyd
the crime fighting clown

give the kids a brown shirt and a microphone

a plastic badge and shotguns of their very own

their so young but they love the tv show 

and the new hero 

he's their new hero

so don't pretend you're innocent 

officer boyd is diligent 

in half an hour he'll track you down 

with any luck he'll beat you down

give that man a brown shirt and a microphone 

some fans a badge a shotgun of his very own 

he's too dumb to star in a tv show 

he's the new hero he's the new hero 
he's the new hero 
he's the new hero 
he's the new hero


Not my absolute favorite off the cd, but this one holds special meaning as it was my introduction to the band. said Paul H on Sunday, December 6, 2015

Excellent, Pitboss. The song's rating increased one full point. said Jedediah Parish on Friday, December 4, 2015

I have to give this one the top rating. I distinctly remember hearing y'all play this the first time I saw you live (that show at Toad's with Miracle Legion), and deciding at that moment that the Gravel Pit was most likely my favorite band in the world. So thanks for that. said The Pitboss on Friday, December 4, 2015

I'm pretty sure the melody of the bridge was subconsciously lifted from the bass part at the beginning of Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) by Darlene Love said Jedediah Parish on Friday, December 4, 2015
